What is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-quality web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative organization. This is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single web server solely. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at 123MegaHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
